The article presents a study that analyzes seismotectonic processes based on the monitoring data of integral lithospheric parameters reflecting continuous variability of the parameters. It notes that while there are many researches into seismic hazards, the final solution that will indulge for the forecast on the future epicentral zone is still ambiguous. It asserts that the long-term experience of monitoring and analysis of geotectonic situations allow the researchers to formulate goals that require crucial factors including the continuous variations of local and integral lithospheric parameters and the fact that regional excitation of a black medium before robust earthquakes. A graph which shows the period of stable and unstable states of the medium at seismic station is also presented.
